the comment after the victory against Struff

Many matches and hours on the court in the only preparation tournament for Wimbledon. Jannik Sinner reached the semi-finals of the ATP 500 in Halle, thus continuing his positive streak of 18 consecutive victories in this category of events.

The South Tyrolean had to work hard to break the resistance of Jan-Lennard Struff, who only surrendered in the tie-break of the third set after breaking the second set and extending the match. In the press conference, the Italian commented on the performance and the two and a half hours of battle that took place on the Gerry Weber Stadion: “There were many ups and downs, several opportunities to break even in the second and third sets but he served very well on most of these occasions.

There were some answers I missed on the 0-40, but it happens. He had a break point and I managed to cancel it. This is tennis, you have to accept what happens and the chances you have. I had many, even if I wasn’t able to exploit them in most cases.

In the last tie-break I played very well,” he said.

From planning to thoughts for Wimbledon

The 22-year-old from San Candido also reflected on the programming in the German event, especially if he had won the doubles quarterfinals with Hurkacz: “The singles program would also have been different, it’s late and court number one has no lights.

We would have to decide whether to play the doubles on Friday or Saturday, because the doubles final is also on Sunday. There is one more day of rest. In the end we lost but I don’t know what would have happened if we had had to play” she highlighted.

Part of Sinner’s thoughts are already turned to Wimbledon: “We all want to arrive in London in the best possible shape. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to play four singles matches here, which are a lot, plus two doubles.

I played a lot on the grass in this first week, in the next week I will train instead. At the beginning we will go at full speed, then we will slow down a bit to have as much energy as possible. We’ll see how I play” she concluded.
